Rachel McAdams For Vogue Italia December 2010

Rachel McAdams is almost unrecognisable in her black and white editorial for Vogue Italia’s December 2010 issue.

I love the big hair and her sultry attitude.

The “Morning Glory” actress was shot by Tom Munro only wearing beautiful pieces from the Chanel Resort 2011 collection.

Some of the looks we’ve seen before on Blake Lively, Alexa Chung and Rachel Bilson.

In her interview Rachel talks about not being very popular at school and how she tries not to play the same character in her movies.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On not being popular at school: “I wasn’t popular at all in high school. I know that every actress says that, but I was really awkward.”

On choosing different roles: “I can’t stand routine. I look like an angel, but I can play the bitch. I love playing different characters; I try to avoid repeating myself too much.”Read More…

Dannii Minogue For Marie Claire UK January 2011

X Factor judge Dannii Minogue graces the cover of Marie Claire UK’s January 2011 issue.

She does so in style showing off her gorgeous figure wearing the gold/silver Victoria Beckham Fall 2010 dress which we first saw on Cameron Diaz at the Vanity Fair party.

Captured by Jonty Davies, the rest of Dannii’s editorial sees the Australian star wearing a dress by British designer Giles, a Valentino black strapless dress and the black and white trimmed self designed Project D dress she wore on the X Factor 2 weeks ago.

You can see a behind-the-scenes video of Dannii’s photoshoot at MarieClaire.co.uk.

Below are some extracts from her interview, but you can read the full interview in Marie Claire’s January issue which hits newsstands this Thursday.

On trying to make a name for herself in the UK: “When I first came over here it was hard because of ‘Kyliemania.’”Read More…

Rihanna For Interview Magazine December 2010

Rihanna looks pretty hot on the cover of Interview Magazine’s December 2010 issue which was shot by Mikael Jansson.

Her editorial wasn’t a crazy as I imagined.

We see Rihanna wearing Lanvin, Valentino, Miu Miu and Chanel’s Spring 2011 feathered dress.

The singer was interviewed by label mate and friend Kanye West, who needs to brush up on his ridiculous interview questions.

Here are some extracts from their interview:

Kanye: How does it feel to know that you could have any man in the world? Or woman? How does it feel to know that you can turn straight women gay?

Rihanna: Is that a real question?

Kanye: Yeah.

Rihanna: Well … Thank you. I don’t know how to feel about that. I guess that’s flattering.Read More…

Alicia Keys For Vogue Italia November 2010

Alicia Keys looked stunning in an editorial for Vogue Italia November 2010.

The singer, who just gave birth to her first son Egypt, rocks in a mohawk for some shots and a sleek ‘do for others.

In her editorial shot by Michelangelo di Battista she wears Blumarine, Balmain, Giorgio Armani, John Galliano, YSL and Miu Miu as she shows us that the good girl of R&B has gone bad.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On posing for this shoot whilst pregnant: “I like to transform myself like a chameleon. The photos showing me pregnant seemed brave and strong to me, just how I feel at this time”.Read More…

Anne Hathaway For Vogue US November 2010

I was totally blown away when I saw Anne Hathaway on the cover of American Vogue’s November 2010 issue.

She looks every inch the perfect cover girl. You just can’t fault her.

In her editorial we see her wearing many gowns I wish she’d saved for the red carpet, but we all know when she finally does hit the red carpet she’s almost guaranteed to blow us away.

She wears a burgundy Oscar de la Renta gown on the cover and a white silk-faille eyelet embroidered dress with beaded bow in the editorial which also sees her wearing Isaac Mizrahi, Carolina Herrera, Vera Wang and Marchesa.

Anne’s editorial featured Resort 2011 looks, so I found it very surprising that Vogue had used that well worn Miu Miu Fall 2010 embellished dress in this editorial, considering it has appeared on every magazine cover worldwide from the UK, to Australia to Japan and considering Vogue prides itself on being the industry leader and not a follower.

Anne’s appearance in the Vogue coincides with her new movie “Love and Other Drugs” which is out on November 24.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On her nude scenes in Love and Other Drugs: “This movie certainly has a lot of nerve . . . Oy. I hope that audiences are OK with all the nerve. These are people who have no trouble taking their clothes off – in a way, their bodies are their currency . . . but they’re terrified of exposing their vulnerability, of becoming emotionally naked.”Read More…

Carey Mulligan For Vogue US October 2010

Carey Mulligan is the October 2010 cover girl for American Vogue.

Grace Coddington styled the Peter Lindbergh shoot which sees Carey wearing Chanel, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Armani Privé and Valentino Couture Fall 2010 looks, plus a Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière peony-print jacquard dress and a Nina Ricci silk-tulle-and-lace dress with velvet sash.

Carey has two movies due for release soon. “Never Let Me Go” and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”, but she’d love to star in “Glee”.

Unfortunately she’s been told she’s not famous enough yet. Maybe her new films will change all that.

Despite being quite petite Carey complained that her Couture wardrobe was too small even for her.

Here are some extracts from her interview with her stunning Couture editorial below.

On attending events with Shia LaBeouf: “Posing on the red carpet feels like you’re selling something that has nothing to do with you. If you do it with someone else, it’s like we’re saying, ‘Oh! We come as a pair! Would you like to buy both of us? We’re available for weddings and Bar Mitzvahs!”Read More…

Blake Lively For Marie Claire UK October 2010

Blake Lively dons a Chanel jumpsuit on the October 2010 cover of Marie Claire UK.

The gorgeous ‘Gossip Girl’ actress features in an amazing editorial shot by Guy Aroch wearing Victoria Beckham, Antonio Berardi and Giorgio Armani.

In her interview she tells us why she doesn’t have a stylist, why she branching out career-wise and she also tells us why she never googles herself.

This issue hit newsstands this morning.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On her style: “I’ve always loved fashion. That’s why I don’t use a stylist. Number one, it’s such an expression of self.”Read More…

January Jones For Tatler UK September 2010

January Jones who plays housewife Betty Draper in the Emmy award-winning TV drama Mad Men, is the cover star for Tatler UK’s September 2010 issue.

The blonde actress looks very regal in her shoot with Robert Erdmann, which shot on a ranch outside of LA.

January confirms in her interview that she’s not leaving ‘Man Men’.

She first she heard about the rumors that she was leaving ‘Mad Men’ from her parents.

She states that she’s under contract and that ‘Mad Men’ wouldn’t be ‘Mad Men’ without Betty Draper.

January is proud that the show is bringing back the idea that it’s okay for women have curves.

She confesses that she has learned to love the girdle she wears to help her achieve her hourglass looks. “It gives you such a nice shape,” she says.

You won’t be surprised to see that Prada and Louis Vuitton feature in her editorial as both collections were inspired by the hit drama.

You may remember that Emily Blunt wore this same Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 dress on a recent photo shoot.

Mary-Kate Olsen For Marie Claire US September 2010

Mary-Kate Olsen appears on 3 covers for the Marie Claire US September 2010 issue.

I’m not a fan of multiple covers, because the cover I want is never available in my newsagent.

My favourite is the Pucci cover. Mostly because of the stunning dress, but also because she’s teasing us with a rare smile.

On the other covers which – were shot by Tesh MK wears a military Burberry Prorsum coat and a sequined Gucci dress with feathered sleeves.

The young designer talks to Marie Claire about talks about her fast-paced lifestyle, running a fashion house in New York City, The Row, her passion for clothing, losing her friend Heath Ledger and how she feels about having been a child actor.

On loving her fashion lines: “It’s kind of like a mask to hide behind.”Read More…
